    Description

    1838-C $2 1/2 PCGS Genuine. Breen-6147, Variety 20, R.3. The PCGS number ending in .92 suggests Cleaning as the reason, or perhaps one of the reasons, that PCGS deemed this coin not gradable. In our opinion, this coin has the details of an AU specimen that has been cleaned. This first-year Charlotte quarter eagle issue is scarce in any grade, as its low mintage of 7,880 pieces might indicate. Careful rotation reveals fine hairlines, but no marks are consequential, and the light golden-brown toning is attractive.
    Ex: FUN Signature (Heritage, 7/2009), lot 1296.
